“Beginning in 2018, Cuyahoga Community College passed a bond levy for $ 227 million to be used for construction of new buildings and upgrading of existing equipment. As part of those efforts, our department was tasked with performing numerous RFPs to procure millions of dollars of equipment, ranging from audio visual, medical and IT equipment.
